Ramatha (रमथ) is the name a locality mentioned in Rājaśekhara’s 10th-century Kāvyamīmāṃsā.—In the Bālābhārata (1.7), Rājaśekhara posits this region in the northern India, which may be represents the country parts near the Raumaka Mountain. The Viṣṇu-Purāṇa also mentions Ramas along with the Huṇas, Salvas, Sakalas in the Northern India. These Ramas may belong to foreign tribes and identified with the people living at Aornos or the ruined fortress of Ranigat. So it may be possible that Rājaśekhara’s described Ramatha may represent the Rama tribe of the Viṣṇu-Purāṇa.Source: Shodhganga: The Kavyamimamsa of Rajasekhara
